    I'm in the process of getting my Archon 50 head modded, solely for aesthetic reasons.

    So far, I had it retolexed awhile back to match my MESA 4x12 and quell my inner OCD about that.

    As for other things I'm looking forward to:

    -PRS doesn't make wooden front panels anymore, but I found a fellow who would be willing to help me out with that as a workaround of sorts. Fence-sitting between fire red or the old stock charcoal black.

    -I may replace the amp jewel. Does PRS only have green ones? Either way it doesn't look the kind on Fender amps that simply unscrew off. And if I have to look elsewhere, any recommendations regarding size, maker, anything else I should know

    Dig it! Fire red would look mean with that rig!

    Thanks, though my only reservation about a red panel is that it's too Christmas-like with the green LED/amp jewel when I switch it on, whichever one it is.

    That's a good point. In that case, the brightest orange you can find!
